Saturday Matinee – Old Crow Medicine Show, New Grass Revival & John McEuen

by

“Caroline” by the Old Crow Medicine Show reminds me of the NGR. Great pickin’ with great harmonies. So let’s go there.

New Grass Revival with Béla Fleck (circa who knows) playing “Deviation.” That reminds me of the NGDB. So let’s go there. One of my favorite songs by The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band is “Some of Shelly’s Blues.” Rather than post a vid of the original recording and have you stare at an album cover, here’s a live version by John McEuen:

John McEuen, Nathan McEuen, Scott Gates, Chelsea Williams at the Coffee Gallery, Altadena, California 29 March 2007.

“There’s nothin’ so hard about the life that you’ve led”
is the best line of the whole song, written by Michael Nesmith (yeah, THAT Michael Nesmith. Check this out.)

Have a great weekend, folks. Ignore the snow.
